Gender-Based Violence in a Global Frame

Penn Humanities Forum

Global efforts to prevent violence have tended to focus on violence between men. Yet it is gender-based violence, largely directed at women and girls, that inflicts the highest costs on a society's health and well-being. Jacqueline Campbell, an international authority on violence against women, discusses this global problem and highlights some of the new community-based strategies that are being used successfully to combat it.
